Choices for Daycare Curriculum Beyond the Office Chair
Daycare Curriculum Possibilities Written by Pamm Clark
This subject for daycare providers can be frustrating! We don't have a lot of spare time or money, yet we need a quality program for the children that's ready to go. It's nice to know that if one is sick, and we are stuck sitting in the waiting room chairs at the doctors office, that our children are in good care. After all, that's what the parents are wanting and all children deserve to be engaged in educational activities.
I have searched and searched and searched. I care for children two years and under and it's tough to find something for that age with lots of easy, hands-on activities. When I did finally find something, the cost was too high and it required lots of planning. We also don't have time to be stuck in waiting room chairs, waiting to pick up our children. It was just not for me.
I got to thinking and researching and decided to put together my own Toddler Curriculum (yes, it's still lots of planning on my part, but now that it's done, I won't have to do it again!). I've gathered easy, hands-on ideas and putting them in one spot with a full year of ideas (not just 9 months! Daycare providers work year-round). Hopefully this makes it easier to look beyond the office door and see your children with smiling faces.
